Dear Professor Ben-Dor,
I am sure there are others who I could address regarding this matter, but the tragedy of your involvement is so enormous in my eyes that it must supercede the matter of all other party’s actions. As I am sure you know, I am referring to your part in coordinating a conference at Southampton University challenging Israel’s right to exist.
It always baffles me when educated people display high levels of ignorance. Your very status is a result of Israel’s existence. You, as a Jew, most likely thrived within Israel’s structure that consisted of freedom, opportunity, and a moral structure non-existent in most of the region. Yet somehow you have made it important to turn your back on the country and the people who made you who you are today.
I wonder if you ever use your intellectual abilities to investigate the murderous regime in Syria. Do you ever take time out of your busy day to research the treatment of women or homosexuals in Israel’s neighboring lands? How about the squandering of funds in the Palestinian Authority or Gaza? Or Hamas using civilians as human shields? Spend any time worried about how ISIS rapes women, beheads people and burns people alive? You may be sick and tired of hearing the same old argument from us Zionists, but I assure you we are even sicker and more tired of hearing the manipulated garbage spewed out by you and your buddies hiding behind your self-proclaimed academic prowess.
I do not know much about your personal history, but to be quite frank with you, I have no interest in knowing more than I do. There is a word to describe an individual that is a word I do not throw around easily, but in your case I am comfortable doing so. The word I am referring to is traitor. What makes you a traitor is your willingness to not only turn your back on Israel at a time when it is under a consistent barrage of unjustified attacks by its enemies, but to actually aid and abet these enemies.
I have no doubt you will either make a claim that the attacks are justified, or you will try to see the attacks as a way of supporting your case. So-called intellectuals such as yourself who put so much of their energy into hating Israel may claim they are doing so based on factual knowledge, but the truth is that this pursuit is driven by emotions, not facts. Even in the worst assessments of Israel’s actions, if only facts were being used as a motivating force, no objective party would utilize their position for the purposes of challenging its right to exist. Instead, the motivations are mostly hate or fear. In your case I am betting on fear.
Naturally this is a claim you will deny, but with England’s growing Muslim population gaining influence, and not only Israelis but Jews everywhere being threatened to a degree not seen since the rise of Nazi Germany, I am guessing you are looking to gain favor in the eyes of those that would wage attacks on our people. Just remember the lessons we learned from those traitors who supported Adolph Hitler. When their purpose was served, they were murdered as well.
If you bother to answer me, something I would not expect from a coward and a traitor, I am sure you will try to make some intellectual case supporting your argument. I am also sure you will do your best to prove how much smarter you are than I am. The funny thing is, even if you are technically a brilliant man, your approach towards Israel is so devastatingly stupid, I wouldn’t trade with you in a heartbeat. I just hope you stop for a moment to recognize how your actions are so immoral that if they don’t haunt you in this life, I have little doubt as to whether or not you will ultimately suffer the consequences of your actions. Regardless of whether you are successful or not.
If you can live with that, so be it. I would just hope you no longer identify yourself as an Israeli or a Jew, because I am sure I speak for many when I say, feeling as you do, we prefer to not be associated with you in any way.
